Shipping & Logistics

The shipping & Logistics industry, often acknowledged as the life blood of the global economy and a proxy for global economic growth, plays an important role in international trade. Being a function of cyclical supply-and-demand, international trade is the exchange of capital, goods, and services across international borders or territories.

Unless in extraordinary circumstances, the demand for sea transport, mainly comprised of; imports and exports of raw materials for the manufacturing industry, and manufactured goods, is driven by global economic growth.

It is worth highlighting that, without the shipping industry – said to be responsible for approximately 80 per cent of world trade, International trade would simply not be possible.

The global freight forwarding market is expected to grow steadily with a CAGR of more than 3.5% during the forecast period. The growth of this industry in the global market is due to the following factors:

  • The growth in international trade volumes is a major driver for freight forwarding market. Moreover, the rise in trade agreements between countries is also contributing to growth of the market.
  • The booming e-commerce market is a major driver for the air freight forwarding industry. The air freight forwarding market has witnessed huge growth in 2017 and in the beginning of 2018 due to the global restocking cycle. However, the growth rate slowed down after the end of restocking cycle.
  • The growing demand for transport of perishables and life sciences/Healthcare sector is also expected to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.
  • Technology is disrupting the freight forwarding business across the globe affecting the business structures and processes. The freight forwarding companies, carriers, are looking to digitize their internal processes and to develop integrated information technology infrastructure.
  • It is estimated that shippers are booking more than 10% of their volumes through online platforms.
  • With the number of Small and Medium sized enterprises (SMEs) increasing, the freight forwarding companies are looking to increase their business from SMEs. The online freight quote and booking platforms provide opportunity for SMEs to expand to international markets, as these platforms have large number of connections when compared to their traditional (brick-and-mortar) counterparts.
  • The freight forwarding business being non-asset based, the sector is facing high competition from other players in supply chain and technology based companies which are disrupting the freight forwarding market.

Sea Freight Forwarding to witness high growth through the forecast period

With the rise in global merchandise trade, the global maritime trade has been growing steadily driving the sea freight forwarding market. In 2017, the global seaborne trade reached 10.7 billion tons with an annual growth of 4%, the highest growth since 2013. The trade of containerized cargo is expected to grow at a faster rate with multi modal transport gaining popularity.

As the shipping liner companies are focusing on reducing the costs, they are looking to acquire or investing in a freight forwarding company. This increases the competition and also affects the established freight forwarding businesses to some extent. For example, the acquisition of a major freight forwarder CEVA logistics is completed in 2019 by the French shipping liner CMA CGM.
